Protective coatings for the oil and gas industry
The upstream and midstream segments of the oil and gas industry present an array of unique challenges as they move oil and gas toward refineries. Given the drive to cut capital costs and the need to adhere to strict environmental regulations that are inherent in this industry, the long life of a coating system and effective protection of assets is essential.
US Coatings designs all types of anti-corrosion coatings for the oil and gas industry, including drilling, wellhead and sub-sea equipment. These typically feature intumescent and heat-resistant properties, high levels of abrasion resistance and the durability to increase component life.
Offshore oil and gas production presents some of the most demanding conditions a coatings system can be subjected to. Constant contact with rough seawater and prolonged exposure to penetrating UV rays threaten to make the life of a coating system short. But in offshore environments, where frequent maintenance is not an option, coatings must have a long service life. They also tend to require advanced personnel safety considerations given the working conditions. These may include non-skid coatings on decks, high-visibility colors and fire and heat resistant coating.
The oil and gas industry is a tough market that requires tough coatings. US Coatings has the experience with corrosion resistant coatings and industrial fireproofing necessary to protect your assets from the elements.
